April 4, 2019

This written testimony was submitted on behalf of the American Society for Engineering Education to the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies for the official record.

Excerpt: "NSF education and research investments have truly transformed our world through engineering breakthroughs such as the internet, fiber-optics, and medical imaging technology. These investments keep our communities safe, lower healthcare costs, and spur our economy. Today, engineering research is opening possibilities through advances in areas such as artificial intelligence, biosensors, and advanced materials. We ask that you robustly fund NSF at $9 billion to support critical education and research programs. In addition, we urge you to continue both STMD and the Office of STEM Outreach at NASA in FY 2020." Read the full statement here.
